What the hell is wrong with that!""It's food!""I can see it's food, moron!""Why are we yelling?"Hotaru took a couple of calming breaths before she half-hissed, half-yelled, "Because my water just flippin' broke and my pants are wet and I'm not due for another flippin' month, that's why!"
Mikan almost fainted.Hotaru pinched her none too gently and hissed, "You better go call the ambulanceor get me to the hospital or I'm going to lose this baby and probably punch you in the face. Cell phone, now!"Mikan dug into her jeans pocket and punched in the emergency number before shouting into the phone, "Oh my God, my friend is going into labor and we're at an amusement park!"By this time, a circle of mothers were surrounding Hotaru who looked like one wrong move and they'd no longer have eyes. Mikan frantically tried to calm down and answered the questions the person on the other line was asking. "Miss, what's the address of this amusement park?""How the hell am I supposed to know that! We're at thethat stupidthe ��Yokohama Cosmoland! That's it! Come quickly!""How old is the lady in labor?""Why the heck does that matter? She's only flippin' twenty one!""These questions are strictly procedure, Miss.

She breathed in and all but snarled, "If one of them runs their hand down my stomachone more time, I'm going to body slam them to the ground and fuckin' strangle them with my own bare hands."With that, the women took one step back.They didn't stop crooning.The next on the list was Ruka.He picked up on the second ring."Mikan, do you have any idea where Hotaru is? I've been calling her for hours but she probably has her phone off. Oh my God, she took my car. She totally tookmy car"�"Who cares about your bloody car, Ruka. You're fianc's water just broke and �she's at an amusement park!""What the hell is she doing at an amusement park? Oh"�"Oh?" Mikan barked into the phone. "That's all you can say? Her water just brokeand she's surrounded by people that she doesn't know and I swear she's going to be thrown in jail for committing a felony any second and all you can say is oh?"
"Where are you? Please tell me you're sitting in the waiting room at the hospital or at least heading to a hospital.""We're still at the amusement park. No wait, I think I hear sirens. Shut up for
